Default Bug#568317: Processed: cloning 568317, reassign -1 to kernel-package

Dear Ben,

>>> I know the scripts suck but I am not in a position to rewrite them. ...
>>> I fixed this in the svn branch ...

OK, you seem to make a subtle distinction between "fix" and "rewrite".

>>> I asked you to send patches for linux-2.6, and you refused.

>> Huh? What do you base that accusation on? ...

>> >>> thanks for your input.
>> which I interpreted as "you" not needing further hand-holding after all.
>> Please explain how my interpretation was wrong; or please retract.

Please note: I never refused, never declined. Please retract.

Maybe I "failed to deliver", but only because I was wilfully misled into
thinking that such was not wanted. Will never again listen to Maks. :-)

Wow, I was not aware of that. But then... Bug#568823 had been "pending"
(I think is now "done"): does that mean that I can expect to see
kernel-package_12.033 in lenny, in the near future? (Surely not, surely
"commit" has meanings unrelated to "to be in next stable update".)

Cheers, Paul

Fair enough, I retract that.

This is true; 'pending' only tells you that the maintainer is preparing
to fix the bug in some new package version, but not which distributions
will be fixed.
